The Year of the Pig
23rd February, 2019 @ 11.51 am
The Pig is the last or twelfth sign of the Chinese Zodiac Calendar. This means that the pig came in last in the race organized by the Jade Emperor. As per one myth, the pig overslept and hence made it to the last position. Another myth says that a wolf destroyed the pig’s home and he had to rebuild it before he could enter the race, and that is why he came in last position. Whatever may be the myth, the Chinese believe that the pig’s chubby face and big ears are a symbol of fortune, so people born in the year of the pig can expect good fortune in their life.
The years of the pig are 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031, etc. Pigs may not stand out in a crowd but they are some of the most genuine people in the world. While others brag and boast and do nothing, pigs just jump into action without much hullaballoo about it. When it comes to money they know how to utilize it properly, they neither splurge nor are stingy, but will spend on meaningful things. They are peace-loving, loyal and kind individuals. Although they can get a little materialistic, this helps them stay motivated to work hard. They have a lot of energy, are very enthusiastic and can feel lively even in the most boring job in the world. Since the pig is a symbol of wealth and fortune, people born in the year of the pig can expect some in their life.
Talking about style and fashion sense, pigs love to be on their fashion A-game. They love having tailored styles in their closet. Great fitting clothes and sophisticated style is what they love. Their style oozes sensual and sexy charm. To cater to the style needs of the people born in the year of the pig, this pair of vintage cut jeans from RMC is one of a kind, indeed.

One of the back pockets features a design of Amida Nyorai, a Buddha who is the patron deity of the people born in the year of the pig. Amida Buddha is the Buddha of infinite light and life, he is the lord of the beyond and the afterlife. The design is so detailed and intricate the Buddha looks so peaceful and divine with a calm face and a halo glowing behind him while he is sitting in Padmasana, a meditative pose on a lotus flower. He is covered in a golden robe and we can see the kanji letter that represents him on his chest. Amida Buddha is the lord of the afterlife and as per Buddhism, the rebirth is made up of 9 grades which are divided into 3 levels and each level has 3 grades; the upper life, the middle life, and the lower life. The upper life is divided into upper-upper birth, upper-middle birth, and upper-lower birth. The middle birth is divided into middle-upper birth, middle-middle birth, and middle-lower birth. The lower birth is divided into lower-upper birth, lower-middle birth, and lower-lower birth. For each grade or the kind of life a person is born in the Buddha holds his hands in a particular mudra. In this particular design he is holding his hand in the Jōbon Jōshō Mudra or the Upper Upper Birth, which is one of the best types of birth a person can have. On the other pocket is the Kanji word which represents Amida Nyorai.
